What makes Nitto’s NT555R the ideal Drag Racing and Cruising Tire?

The Nitto NT555R Extreme Drag Radial tires are designed for competitive drag racing while being D.O.T. compliant for track and back home driving. This tire outperforms all drag racing radial tires while providing impressive control and handling while still providing up to 15,000 miles of walking life for typical street driving. These tires are constructed with a specially formulated soft racing compound to ensure maximum traction.

Nitto first made its name, giving enthusiasts the tires and sizes no one else would, and that ethos continues into everything we do today. Every corner of our automotive enthusiast world is worthy of being celebrated—and having a tire perfectly designed for it.


  • The NT555R combines a high-grip compound and semi-racing construction to provide increased traction at the starting line. The NT555R is the drag radial for the street or strip.
  • The NT555R drag radial works in unison with the NT555 summer performance street tire so that you can put the drag radials on the driven axle and the NT555s on the non-driven axle. When developing both product lines, Nitto matched the tread pattern and sizing to fit modern performance vehicles.
  • The overall construction has been modified to improve launch performance. The NT555R was designed to achieve a balance between maximum dry performance and occasional street use.
  • Semi-radial construction, combined with a unique reinforced package, helps provide stability at high track speeds.
  • The tread compound is formulated to balance tread wear and drag strip performance, allowing for the weekend racer to drive to the track, compete, and drive back home on the same set of rear tires.
  • UTQG Rating: 100 A A
  • Sizes range from 15 to 20-inch wheels
